The book shows readers the lived faith of a religious priest in a hockey setting. We find how religious faith has to bring to the public square, whether in its devotion to ageless values or in its belief in transcendence. We discover a religious faith that is rooted in developing human persons, whether in schools, colleges, or ice rinks. We see the human side of religion, one that tries to understand the implications of faith in the real world. For instance, Bauer critiques an overemphasis on skill development in sport because he believes that it limits—even denies—the flourishing of the human person, where players overemphasize know-how without considering their purpose for playing the game.

Q&A with James Matthew Wilson

Q&A with James Matthew Wilson

MacGreevy’s poetry and criticism redescribes the modern world in terms of Augustine’s theory of the Two Cities. Coffey, who studied with Maritain and at one point taught Aquinas at Saint Louis University, saw the neo-Thomist revival as a way to save modern persons from the suicide of Kantian idealism; Aquinas’s understanding of being as gift, as intelligible and so capable of giving itself, by way of form, to be known by intellects saves us from solipsism, skepticism, and madness. For MacGreevy and Coffey, Samuel Beckett represented that fateful solipsism if Aquinas’s insights were ignored. Go figure. They were very close friends. Coffey and Beckett were even golf partners. It would be hard to understand the meaning of Beckett’s work without seeing how it engaged, and was fruitfully engaged by, Coffey’s Thomistic philosophy. For Devlin, Michel de Montaigne and Blaise Pascal understood the modern age as few others could. They saw the chaos of historical experience and realized that mankind could not be saved by any external development, including political justice.

My hope, though, is that the story of a group of women who dared to change the world–even with flawed methods–shines through. As I say in the book, “The history of race, gender, and religion in America is a complicated on that has kept scholars busy for years. . . . Drexel and the SBS saw things more simply. They witnessed inequality and prejudice and sought to use their Catholic faith to expand the definition of who got to be an American. It was other people who made it complicated.”

Sampson was well aware that the spiritual leadership chaplains are supposed to provide is impossible without the respect of the people they provide it to, especially in extraordinary and tragic circumstances such as the Second World War or the Korean War.
